    I am buying an R1 in a few weeks. ON yamahas website they say the MSRP for a BLue&White one is $10,299.

    I went to a dealer and they said the 03's are 10,600 but they have a 02 i can pick up brand new still for 9,600. I say that both are too much for what they should be. I figure an 02 should be about 9,000 and an 03 should be about 9,750 at a dealer.

    What are the prices by you guys.
    I am also buying a rear stand, new helmet, and new jacket at the same time. so that stuff will be another $1,000 or so.

    Don't you think I should get a deal for buying all that crap at once.
    I think I should get all that stuff for about 10,700 or so....but the dealer wants about 11,700 for all that.

    What do you guys think.

    UUmmmmmmm.......did you read my post or no.

    I clearly stated what the YAMAHA WEBSITE said. it was $10,299.
    I asked what dealers were quoting to intersted buyers.
    In general i have noticed the price at dealers is generally lower than MSRP on many cars, snowmobiles and other bikes.

    I however got a quote that I think is high from my dealer wear I may purchase an R1 from. So i wondered what other dealers are quoting.

    That is all.

    It depends on the dealership. The ones around here love to price gouge like a bitch. But if I drive a little I can get the same damn bike from Georgia or Mississippi for far far less.

    A couple friends of mine got brand new Kawasaki ZX-6R's for $6500, but they had to go to Mississippi with a truck to get them back here. I love my F4, but if I had known about that deal I would have jumped on it with a quickness.
     
  5. Good luck finding a brand new R1 for under $10,000
    I paid $9,800 in '99 for mine.

    if you don't think it is worth $10,299 then don't buy it! I mean I paid $13,490 for my Ducati - worth every penny - so will the $10,399 I am going to pay for a 03 gixxer 1000 in about 5-6 weeks.

    Muaahhhahahaha....... to all those who are paying full price. :fawk:

    I have been wheelin' and dealin' for about a month now and I have got what I want. I talked them down to $10,200 flat out the door for a 2003 R1. adn $8,123 out the door for the 2003 R6. I have decided on getting the R6 instead becasue it seems a little more value for my dollar. It will still kick ass and be fun as hell but it will just be a bit less ballzy but also $2000 less.

    I am getting my bike for about $800 less than I should be including tax, title, and registration.

    who cares about msrp cause you never pay it anyways.

    there are enough motorcycle dealers around here you can usually get a good price.

    is there anywhere to find invoice prices for motorcycles?

    I still have it. It is an '82 or '84 can't remember my roomate has a bike at one of those years and mine is the other.

    anyway its a Yamaha 400 SECA. My mom bought it about 7 years ago for $800. Then I got a hold of it and got my license. Before that I only rode snowmobiles and 4 wheelers. Its a fun little bike. The guy I bought it from did some work to it and put a nice Dunlop on the rear. I had the clutch redone when I got it. Its pretty quick. I can pull wheelies on it about 6" high. No windsheild or any cowlings though. I still like it. I think I am going to rebuild the carbs this summer and pimp it once and awhile. Prolly the days that I don't want to have the new R6 out in the weather. I don't want it to get dusty and shit. I blue booked the SECA after I bought the R6 and it blue books for the same I bought it for. So if I sell it for the blue book its like I had a free bike for 5 or 6 years. I think I am going to give it to my little bro though if he dicides to learn how to ride. He is 20 but he only rides snowmobiles.

    there's a brand spanking new 02 R1 at the local dealer here,,,, price reduced to 8500. I'd buy it but I know I couldn't handle an R1 yet. Let me know if you want that dealer's phone number.

    nope don't need anymore quotes or anything. I already have had my 2003 R6 for a month and a half now. Got a good deal too.
